Unrelenting Conspiracy Against Korle bu BOARD CHAIRMAN RESIGNS
After several months of unrelenting but coordinated attacks and vilification of management and board of directors of the nation's center of health excellence, Korle bu Teaching Hospital; the board chairman, Professor Seth Andrew Ayittey has finally bow-out.
Professor Seth Andrew Ayittey's resignation follows weeks of boardroom wrangling and vilification by some members of the current Korle-bu Teaching Hospital Board of Directors, some aggrieved management and staff, both present and past and certain professionals in the Hospital with the active collaboration of certain media houses and practitioners.
The out-gone Korle bu board chairman tendered his resignation letter dated, 27th February, 2012 to the President John Evans Atta Mills last Wednesday 29th, February.
Also targeted in the hatched conspiracy is the Chief Executive Officer of the hospital, Prof. Nii Otu Nartey, Head of Medical Directorate, Prof. A.J. Hesse and Acting Head of the Procurement unit, Mrs. Felicity Commey.
Minister of Health, Alban S. K. Bagbin during a familiarization tour on Tuesday 21st February, 2012 threatened to recommend the dissolution of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital (KBTH) board.
He said the Board which is riddled with too many internal squabbles had not been able to solve its administrative challenges.
“The team spirit is gone and deviants have to be cast out. When the Bible said cut the hand that brings harm it did not mean do it yourself but someone can do it on your behalf”. He noted.
And only last week a group calling itself Concerned Workers of Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital led by their spokesperson, Anthony Kpammah also added to the call for the immediate dissolution of the current Board of the hospital.
